About Indonesia and Food

Indonesia is the world's largest archipelago. From the air, Indonesia is like a beautiful necklace of aquamarine and sapphire and emerald hues, strung between Australia and mainland Southeast Asia, and home to nearly two hundred million people. A vast and beautifully diverse country dotted over more than five thousand kilometers of tropical oceans across the equator. With these enormous numbers of people and over 15,000 islands, there are no arguments that we are looking at more than a hundred ethnic groups and more than three hundred distinct dialects/languages. So, with the facts, variety is the spice of life and nowhere is this more than true in Indonesia.
